Thanks for the wonderful job you are doing.
Please note my question below
I am 32 year old circumcised male and recently on my trip to Asia I had indulged in sexual activity and I wanted to know whether am I at risk. Following are the sexual activity
1) Protected vaginal sex using double condoms. After sexual activity I checked both condom and found them to be intact, that is no broken condom or no leakage etc.
2) Protected oral sex. I used single condom which never broke in oral sex.
3) There was absolutely no kissing or anything else involved.
4) I just touched her vaginal area ( only surface no insertion) once for few seconds and later I realized I had a minor non- bleeding cut on my finger. This cut was 2 days old and although bit deep seemed only superficial as there was never any bleeding.
At no time her fluids touched me except maybe during touching her vaginal surface or her fluid on my pubic hair.
I have already undergone HIV RNA PCR test on 16th Day after my sexual activity ( >2 weeks) and it came out negative.
Please let me know am I still at risk?
Good afternoon, My case is as follow, I am a man an I had sex with a prostitute and the condom broke, I realized until we finished the intercourse. I got nervous and asked her to show me her HIV tests, she showed me, but the one was from 3 months ago and the result was NON-REACTIVE, I told her it was too old, so I asked her to go with me to a health center and perform an updated HIV test, she accept. The test was done and the result was likewise NON-REACTIVE. I was investigating post-exposure prophylaxis and as I found, in my country they do not apply it if the result of the test has been NEGATIVE (NON-REACTIVE). This is correct? I mean, can I be sure that she does not have HIV and therefore could not have infected to me? Beforehand thank you very much.
this is my 3rd time positing to you but no reply at all. I am totally broken due to fear and anxiety of hiv please help me to sort out this.
I must admit that after an unprotected brief anal intercourse a second foolish mistake to do a test alere determine at home while i was not totally aware of the procedure. I did and a grey control line and a faint grey line appear after few minutes on the test strip i was shocked and assumed that my life has been ended up. after reading much articles and who website i came to know that this might be an invalid test as what i saw was a shadow and alere determine requires coloured line for reactive as many other experienced the same and WHO also stated in their practice module 9. since then i repeated test as follows
High top antibody rapid home test (non reactive at 7.5 week)
Alere determine done by me at 8.5 and 9 week non reactive
Since i know i should confirm my result i went to a health care provider in my area and tested with SD Bioline hiv 3.0 test non reactive at 10 week.
I tested again by myself at 13 week using alere determine hiv 1/2 nonreactive
at 15 week i went to a local community health care centre where they tested me with hiv antibody test rapid test non reactive
at 20 week i went to the same health care centre for the retest and they test me with alere hiv combo twice and reassure me that i am free from hiv.
Please help me to sort out my anxiety. i shall be thankfull
I went on the rugby pitch when one of my teammates got a small amount of blood in my mouth. A few days later I have a sore throat and possibly some other symptoms. From what I know he doesn't have the virus, and we were partying pretty hard while we were there. Is it possible to contract hiv through the blood of someone who doesn't have it?
I had a sexual encounter with a 70 yo gay male, although he said he was clean I know I should trust nobody, there was no actual penetration although I did rub my penis over his anus, I also performed oral sex to him but he didn't cum into my mouth but there was some pre cum as far I can remember, so around 5 seconds later he ejaculated, he put his genitals on my face and there was still some semen on his penis that rubbed my eye. Considering all these sexual activities, what's the risk of contracting HIV? Should I get worried? I'm actually worried now because 9 days later after the sex I'm getting a rash on my feet, thinking could be athlete's foot but now with the sexual encounter I had, I'm freaking out could be something else, as rashes are common symptoms for HIV . Last question, when is the best time to get tested? Should I wait a couple of months? Thank you very much.
Hi I m from India I went to Pattaya where I went to a erotic massage parlour there I choose a girl... Girl went to first toilet after she came to room..there she do massages only body massage for 20 minutes..after that soapy massage this is nude body massage..so I use condom...i don't see her to open a packet condom... I have doubt she infected condom when she was in toilet..i don't do any kind of sex (no penetration) . I have all HIV symptoms..fatigue, joint pain, lost of appetite.. after that I test rapid HIV antibodies screening test after 45,66,112 days... All comes negative...is it not conclusive?? And main question is that could somebody infect condom with her blood to passing hiv intentionally... Condom she used after 20 minutes and condom put in her beg..
I had a protected vaginal sex. This was my only sexual intercourse for 3-4 month period. I used condom from beginning to end. There were kissing and oral sex (I didn't give, only received for 20-25 seconds and she didn't have a place which is actively bleeding as far as i saw)
But the problem is: I've been dealing with jock itch for a long time. I itch the place between my groin (left and right side of the penis/leg) and it's usually red-rash area. It wasn't bleeding during the sex or before the sex but I read that rashed skin may help tranmission of HIV if any vaginal fluid contacts with it. Is this true? Do I have a chance to catch HIV from my jock itch even If I used condom? (condom doesn't cover that area)
My second question is: She had a suspectful sexual intercourse. We both had tested. (4th generation Alere Determination HIV 1/2 AG/AB Combo, fingerstick) We had tested in 38th day after her possible sexual intercourse. Our tests resulted negative/nonreactive. Is 38 day enough to detect If there was antigens or antibodies? I read some guidelines and research articles and as far as i understand after 28th day (both ab and ag peaks) there may be a time which both antigens or antibodies are not enough to detect. Is this true? Is 38 day enough to understand our situation?
Can you help me with these two questions?
Thank you so much!
During my last sexual encounter which was due to fantasies with a pre op trans woman, received protected anal, but I got anxious that the condom could have been broken, I have made the following tests:
1. HIV PCR and VDRL at day 8, All negative
2. HIV 1/2 COMBO/DUO Test at day 28, All negative
3. HIV COMBO/DUO , VDLR, Hep B and Hep C at day 94, All negative
4. HIV COMBO/DUO at day 101, Negative.
So basically all is negative, but I still have anxiety that I could have messed something with the window period.
Are HIV and VDRL conclusive after 3 months period?
I would appreciate your kind support in this matter.

She scratches the bottom part of her wrist and her hand and I scratched the top of my hand ..... Her scratch is immediately bleeding and my scratch is immediately bleeding .......
But the fact is Her scratch on her wrist and hand is immediately bleeding and my scratch on the top of my hand is immediately bleeding ... So she reaches her hand up with the scratch that is immediately bleeding on it to say she is sorry…. and grabs my hand where it is immediately bleeding and she is now resting her immediately bleeding scratch on her wrist and hand against the immediately bleeding scratch on my elbow to say I'm sorry ..... Her scratch is directly contacting and lying on top my scratch for about 10 seconds or more as she says I’m sorry— So I pull my arm back quickly — but again …..
Now there is 10 or more seconds of full blown Immediate Direct Contact -- without Intervening steps — where these scratches are directly lying on top of each other
So immediately we get these scratches that are immediately bleeding she grabs my elbow holds it for 10 or more seconds to say Im sorry
— and his immediate bleeding scratch on her hand that is freshly bleeding is immediately directly
touching, directing contacting… touching and lying directly exactly where I just got a scratch at the exact same time that is freshly bleeding …..
So we are touching for 10 or more seconds…. The spot on her wrist and hand that is freshly bleeding is having full blown immediate direct contact to the scratch on the top of my hand that is freshly bleeding and I am having immediate direct contact (with no intervening steps) immediate direct exposure... 10 or more seconds of full blown immediate and direct exposure….. 10 or more seconds of full blown immediate direct contact …. 10 or more seconds of full blown immediate direct bodily access into my bodily system straight from the immediate fresh bleeding scratch on his hand onto and into me from the scratch on the top of my hand
with her fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv+ infected fluids, with her fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv+ blood , fresh full blown positively charged hiv+ hiv… immediately .. directly onto and into my
scratch on the top of my hand that is freshly bleeding from her freshly bleeding scratch on her wrist and hand for 10 or more seconds that is now going onto and into my bodily system … onto and into my body from this incident
No gloves No bandages on either of us — Bleeding Open skin on bleeding open skin… Bleeding open scratch on bleeding open scratch … bleeding open wound on bleeding open wound —

10 or more seconds of immediate full blown direct contact onto and into my body …
10 or more seconds of immediate full blown direct bodily access onto and into into my fresh bleeding scratch on the top of my hand onto and into my blood stream …. my bodily system my body from the fresh bleeding scratch on the bottom of her wrist and on her hand onto and with his
fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv + infected fluids, her
fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv + blood, his
fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv+ hiv onto and into my body through the
fresh bleeding cut on the top of my hand from her fresh bleeding cut on her hand.
So I am having direct contact —hand scratch freshly bleeding lying directly
and having immediate direct contact on my freshly bleeding stingy scratch on the top of my hand .....
Both skin her and mine gets scratched at the same immediate time and freshly
bleeding … then less than 1 second goes by and ….. Skin to Skin….. Scratch to Scratch…. Wound to Wound — 10 or more seconds….4 seconds of immediate full blown direct contact into my body … and 10 or more seconds of immediate full blown direct bodily access into my bloodstream and my bodily system from the fresh bleeding scratch on the bottom of her wrist and her hand with his fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv + infected fluids, her fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv+ blood, her fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv+ hiv onto and into my body through the fresh bleeding cut on the top of my hand from her fresh bleeding cut on the bottom of her wrist and on her hand. with a strong grippy firm tight ......completely direct contacted cut on cut 10 oo more second direct contact shake with and where both wounds are immediately directly touching and directly contacting each other with no intervening steps

I was doing a glucose blood test and after I finished with the procedure I went to take out the little needle that was in the pen device and I accidentally stuck myself I did not bleed and I was wear gloves. I am unaware of this person has HIV or anything else blood related that is transmittable. Am I at risk? Should I go and get tested?
